If you’re flying out of LaGuardia Airport this summer, you might want to consider finding a ride to drop you off.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is warning travelers that the airport’s parking lots are expected to reach capacity as early as Tuesday and remain that way until late on Thursday of each week.

The agency said lots are expected to be full from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays as well as from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursdays.

The congestion, according to the Port Authority, is due to ongoing construction projects and is expected to last through Labor Day weekend.

LaGuardia Airport is currently undergoing a major $4 billion renovation project.

Travelers are urged to use ground transportation that doesn’t require parking at the airport, the Port Authority said.
